A Spinning Spider floating on Gossamer wings

SpiderWeb2

Spider silk, is a very lightweight protein fiber, also known as gossamer. The silk is very strong and can handle a stress load superior to that of high-grade steel, before it breaks.  I am currently working on a post about cloth that was spun by spiders for later this week. Be prepared to be amazed.
